The Magic of Carbon Capture and Sequestration

Sightline Daily

They do this because the CO2 helps displace the fossil fuels, pushing them up to the surface and making them easier to extract. Whats even more alarming, however, is that so-called carbon capture and sequestration is routinely touted as a way that we can have our fossil fuel cake and eat it too. Basically, what you do is this: you leave fossil fuels in the ground and you dont burn them. Skip to content.

Even in an extreme post-peak oil scenario, cuts in fossil fuel consumption, notably coal (the most abundant and carbon intensive fuel) would still be required, if we want to avoid dangerous climate change. It’s not so much an energy crisis, but a liquid fuels crisis (or more to the point a cheap liquid fuels crisis, as discussed in the Hirsch Report ). Finally there is the issue of long term supplies of nuclear fuels.
